Eyecarry Brand to Be Featured on QVC, HSN and Zulily During Pride Month

EyeCarry, a Fort Lauderdale-based company founded by F. Thomas Godart that provides eyeglass case products, has been selected for Qurate Retail Group’s Small Business Spotlight. The initiative helps strengthen diverse small businesses through increased exposure and other pro bono in-kind services. The program was launched in 2020 as part of Qurate Retail Group’s longstanding foundation of supporting small businesses and increasing opportunities for underrepresented groups. Qurate Retail Group includes QVC, HSN, Zulily and several other brands. It will provide its production resources, television broadcasts and digital platforms to help EyeCarry share its story with millions of consumers nationwide. 

EyeCarry’s story began appearing on QVC’s and HSN’s websites and social pages in June, and the company will be highlighted on air at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. on QVC and 2:55 p.m. and 8:55 p.m. EST on HSN on June 20. EyeCarry will also debut its products through online retailer Zulily for the first time. 

“We’re honored to be featured by QVC, HSN and Zulily, among other brands in representation of Pride Month,” F. Thomas Godart says, inventor and founder of EyeCarry. “Creating awareness in the LGBTQ+ community is something we practice every day and this is an opportunity to take it a step further.”

EyeCarry is an eyeglass case designed never to leave your side. The brand was founded to solve one man’s quest to stop losing his own glasses. While working for his boating company, Godart could never find a convenient and safe way to store his eyeglasses—so he decided to create his own solution and EyeCarry was born. Its open-face design has a specialty clip engineered to grasp tightly to nearly every belt or strap. With the EyeCarry case, users will no longer need to hang their glasses on their shirts, place them on their heads, or toss them into a bag without protection. EyeCarry’s mission is to significantly reduce the amount of broken, scratched and lost glasses nationwide. 

“Our 2022 Small Business Spotlight shares the extraordinary stories of diverse entrepreneurs as they inspire and support their customers and communities,” Suzanne Quigley says, Director of Global Corporate Responsibility at Qurate Retail Group. “We’re proud to be part of their success by introducing these small businesses to our national audiences across our retail platforms.”

The current chapter of the Small Business Spotlight runs through June and highlights LGBTQ+-owned businesses celebrating Pride Month. Throughout 2022, QVC US, HSN and Zulily will also be promoting selected small businesses during Black History Month, Women’s History Month, Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month and National Military Appreciation Month, National Hispanic Heritage Month and National Disability Employment Awareness Month.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
